Mind Stretch

Mind Stretch

I’ve been doing loads of drawing and doodling,  anything and everything that comes to mind. Stretching out my mind, as if doing a calf stretch before a big run. With preparations for a few up and coming exhibitions and arty involvements, it certainly turns up the heat in your brain for idea’s.

I’m excited for this coming Feast Your eyes 3 festival, being held on 15 October at the Freo Arts Centre.  I’m going to be one of the artists preparing something on the night… which is totally nerve racking to say the least!   The theme for the entire event is “City Spaces”.  I never draw buildings or anything along the lines of this theme, so it’s scary and yet invigorating having to push my creative side to an area I’m not used to dwelling on.

Sooo, drawing, painting, doodling all sorts of things at the moment.

Fields of Solace and coming exhibitions

Fields of Solace and coming exhibitions

The subject of our teachings this week, was on the famous artist Mark Rothko.  (Think rectangles people!)

You wouldn’t really think so though, looking at what I painted.  Maybe next week I’ll tackle an abstract piece.  Although there are aspects of abstractedness in this one…(?).. if you look really up close!

Also news in that I’ll be exhibiting soon.  One is a the local Artzplace community group.  I’ll be placing the pieces that were in the Swancon show, and one from the City of Cockburn’s last Show Off exhibition as well.  Pity this one can’t be included… it looks pretty good in the flesh.

There’s also an upcoming exhibit at Little Creatures, called Bestiola’s.  That should be fun.  Apparently “Bestiola” means – little creature, so that’s clever!  I feel an evil mutating creature featured style painting/drawing lurking to be created!  Watch out for this one, it will be an exciting event, with some wonderful West Aussie artists getting involved!

Kline styles and Reflections

Kline styles and Reflections

The Freedom School of Art started back in for another term this week.  We looked at the style of Kline’s paintings…. not my total cup of tea really.  But it was kind of interesting watching our teacher produce one in the style of Kline’s famous black and white pieces.

I couldn’t really bring myself to produce something along this style, so went with this instead.  I like it actually.. not sure if it’s finished yet… perhaps I will work into it a bit more.
